Improvements to the cramped intersection of Jim Crow and McEver roads in Flowery Branch will be finished before the end of the month. The intersection north of downtown Flowery Branch has been an issue for the South Hall city for years, causing traffic problems for residents and stirring strong feelings from city officials who feel the intersection is unsafe. Construction finally began in July. The $1.4 million project led by Hall County will add right- and left-turn lanes at all points of the intersection to relieve congestion, which has been getting worse as South Hall has grown.
